DuBois American Legion Holds POW/MIA Ceremony

DUBOIS, Pa. -- The DuBois American Legion held a special ceremony Tuesday evening to draw attention to soldiers who are missing in action or prisoners of war.

The ceremony centers around an empty table placed in the center of the room, symbolizing the empty chair of the soldier.

A pinch of salt on the table symbolizes the tears of the soldier's family.

Organizers said a slice of lemon on the table symbolizes the soldier's "bitter fate."

DuBois American Legion officials said the ceremony has been held across the country.
